FTP is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol – a pretty popular method of exchanging website files between a home PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as CuteFTP or FileZilla, you can make a connection to the server and check its content in one pane, whereas the files on your PC will be displayed in another pane within the program window. All you’ll need to do to send files or entire folders in either direction is to mark them and then to drag them from one pane to the other. File Transfer Protocol is used by plenty of users because you can set up different FTP accounts and each of them can be limited to access just one single directory on the server, so a designer, for example, can fulfill their job without being able to view any other folder in your web hosting account. Furthermore, the availability of different FTP accounts will also permit you to create numerous websites using web design apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and to upload them to their specific folders on the server.

FTP Accounts in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to create multiple FTP accounts with just a few clicks of the mouse via the Hepsia Control Panel and to choose what website files and folders each account can connect to. There isn’t any upper limit on the total number of FTP accounts that you are allowed to create, so you’ll be able to have as many as you need at any particular moment. If you wouldn’t like to use a specific FTP account any longer or in case a designer has completed their job and you don’t want them to access the website content any longer, you can simply remove that account. The FTP section of the Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to check all currently active accounts displayed in alphabetical order, along with various options, which you can access with one single mouse click. You will be able to change the password and the access path, to download an auto-configuration file, etc. We also have an in-depth Help section, which can help you administer your FTP accounts should you have any complication.

FTP Accounts in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you host your Internet sites under a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to set up a different FTP account for each one of them, since we have not put a limit on this service with any of our semi-dedicated plans. You can do this through the FTP section of our user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also see the full list of all the FTP accounts that you have set up, together with the folder that each one of them can access. If needed, you will be able to modify the password for a given FTP account or to modify its access path with a couple of mouse clicks. You can also remove an account effortlessly in case you do not need it anymore – for instance, if you’ve hired a web developer who’s done with the site and you do not want them to be able to access your web files any longer. For convenience’s sake, we have compiled a number of educational video clips, which will help you manage your FTP accounts with no effort if you have never used a web hosting service previously.
